LETTER: Thank you to those who helped reshape Seymour River following rock slide

Dear editor:

Re: Moving Mountains to Save a River, Dec. 6 Friday Focus.

article continues below

On behalf of the Seymour Salmonid Society, I would like to thank you for your article in the Dec. 6 edition of your newspaper, Moving Mountains to Save a River. We believe it really hit the mark.

We especially would like to recognize [reporter] Brent Richter and [photographer] Mike Wakefield for their ongoing commitment in following the story of this natural disaster through to where we are today. Brent has been with us from Day 1 on this event, and we believe that he really did an outstanding job of capturing the facts on this project. Brent has helped us to communicate to the community on efforts to enhance and protect our natural playground and wildlife for us and future generations to enjoy.

There’s still a lot to be done, but a disaster has been averted as we work to ensure that there’s fish in the Seymour River forever.

To the hard work and commitment by our community, the many volunteers, the workers involved in breaking rock, the funders, the staff, and board members of the society, and all the levels of government and their local representatives for coming to the aid of the salmonids, I would personally like to thank each and every one of you.

Shaun Hollingsworth, president
Seymour Salmonid Society
